Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace

 

 

Ahead of the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, Volkswagen has unveiled the larger Tiguan Allspace. It has put on a few inches front to back to make room for the optional third row of seats. The wheelbase has grown by 109mm, from 2681mm to 2790mm, and the length went up by 215mm, from 4486mm to 4701mm. Those two changes have liberated enough room around the back to push the boot space of the five-seat variants from 615 litres to 760 litres, an increase of 145 litres. With all the seats down, the Allspace can swallow 1920 litres of luggage, which is 265 litres more than the regular Tiguan’s maximum cargo capacity.

We’ve seen the Volkswagen Tiguan doing test runs on the Mumbai-Pune expressway, and the company has also confirmed that the Tiguan will launch sometime this year. The Skoda Kodiaq is also crashing the SUV party this year with seven seats. As they both belong to the same Volkswagen family, they’re clearly sharing the platform and the powertrains. The major difference here is that one of them is a 5-seater while the other is a 7-seater. Close examination of the spec sheet reveals that the Kodiaq and the Tiguan Allspace are very close. The Kodiaq’s wheelbase is 2791mm long (1mm more than Allspace’s) and it’s 4700mm long (1mm shorter than the Allspace). At 1920 litres, its maximum cargo-carrying capacity is identical to that of the Allspace. The ground clearance of the Tiguan Allspace stands at 200mm, which is 10mm more than the Kodiaq’s.

The Tiguan Allspace will come with a choice of three TSI turbocharged petrol engines and three TDI turbocharged diesel engines with power outputs ranging from 150PS to 240PS. India, however, will most likely get the 1.4-litre TSI petrol engine and the 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine.

Now that the Tiguan is done with the lab tests and is roaming on public roads testing its guts, we’re even more confident of its impending launch. We’re expecting to see it on the showroom floors in the next couple of months. Pricing is expected to start at Rs 25 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
